My sentiments exactly......
All while they make mega bilateral business deals with Russia
There was a time when ole Joe was a good pub. He sure has been DCized.
I"m not sure Kavanaugh would have been my first choice. DONALD TRUMP'S SUPREME COURT NOMINEE HELPED DEFEND OBAMACARE 07/09/2018 Tho Bishop Donald Trump has made his second Supreme Court nomination: Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Relative to the other names that were discussed, Kavanaugh’s selection could be seen as a win for the establishment. For one, he will uphold the Court’s record of Justices with law degree from either Harvard or Yale. Two, he has a very swamp-friendly resume, including a long history of doing legal work for the Republican Party and a particular closeness with the Bush family. Having worked on matters including the Clinton Impeachment, the 2000 Florida Recount, and challenges to Obamacare, he has been described by Senator Dick Durbin as the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics.” Interestingly, a decision he made regarding the Constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act is what troubles many on the right. Though he dissented to the question of whether the bill was Constitutional under the Commerce Clause, his minority opinion made it clear that it his objection was to the court’s jurisdiction and not the law itself. He viewed the individual mandate as a tax, logic used by Chief Justice John Roberts in upholding the law. As Christopher Jacobs wrote for The Federalist: In Kavanaugh’s view, the mandate could fit ‘comfortably’ within Congress’ constitutional powers,” Even as he ‘do[es] not take a position here on whether the statute as currently written is justifiable,’ Kavanaugh concludes that ‘the only potential Taxing Clause shortcoming in the current individual mandate provision appears to be relatively slight. Attention now will turn to Kavanaugh’s views on Roe vs. Wade and whether his appointment will challenge that decision. On Fox News this morning, Judge Andrew Napolitano thought Kavanaugh’s explicitly pro-life track record as a Justice would make the nomination process more difficult, possibly pushing Trump to nominate someone different. We will now see how moderate Republicans, such as Senator Susanne Collins, react to the decision. Of course, the fact that the appointment of a single Supreme Court Justice warrants nationwide protests now erupting is simply a reminder of the inherent failures of a system which gives so much power to nine people in black robes.
Yeah, 20+ years ago. He’s practically persona non grata here in his old district
Good read here - https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/brett-kavanaugh-nomination-supreme-court-an-opportunity-lost/ I read where it was speculated that Kennedy agreed to step down if Kav was going to be Trump's nominee to replace him.
Joe is an excellent example of how the Swamp can change a person. From what I know about his early political career, he was alright.
Meanwhile, the liberals ignore the REAL threats of Sharia law...
The real question here is what are his ties to Russia and Putin ?
Could of fooled me. BTW, he claims the University of Alabama, please let them have him.
Some people think Kamala Harris will be our next President. What a nightmare. She makes Obama look like Winston Churchill.
Speaking of NATO......
Thats my understanding also. I lived in P'cola when he was first elected.
Honestly though, Kavanaugh worries me the most out of who the supposed top 4 were. But I’ll take him over a Garland (or worse) every time
I moved here in 2004, but sat next to him 3 or 4 times around 2007-8. He was fine the first time (in the practiced “I care” politician way) and then went full douche when he thought I could be a source of info.
People cannot be parsed as you describe. We know what we know, we believe what we believe and we reason and balance accordingly.
But, Law, it's so embarrassing to have our President insinuate that a deadbeat might actually be, well, a deadbeat. Weren't you ashamed?
Agree, he’s got to be the most liberal of those considered.
